Minaret Academy emphasizes phonics as the base of our Language Arts curriculum. An enriching phonics program paves the way for a successful language arts program with incremental stepping stones that build on key skills. At Minaret Academy, we blend literature, language and writing skills into a comprehensive program of study. These genres enhance comprehension, vocabulary, writing and higher level thinking skills.
We base our esteemed Language Arts program on the Socratic Method. Using literature and language as guides to foster deeper critical thinking skills, students at Minaret Academy benefit from a balanced environment that builds lasting evaluative skills that students can carry into a promising future.
Minaret Academy is also proud to participate in inter-school competitions that provide our students with enriching growth and development opportunities. In 2016, all participating Minaret Academy students placed “Top 5” in the annual inter-school spelling bee.
Minaret Academy is also proud to announce that our school received the highly prestigious WASC accreditation in 2016
